Thank you for selecting the Motorola Netopia® 2247-N8 DSL Gateway. This guide will help you
set up and configure your network.
Check your package contents. It should contain the items shown here:
Motorola Gateway
Power Supply
CD & User Manual
Telephone Cable
Ethernet Cable
If you don’t have everything, contact your supplier immediately.
1. Decide on a location for the Gateway.
Put the Gateway near a power source, a DSL wall outlet, and in a location where air can
circulate freely around it.
2. Power the Gateway.
Connect the power supply to the power jack on the back panel of the Gateway. Then,
plug the power supply into an electrical outlet. Turn on the Power switch.
The Power LED should light solid green.
3. Insert the Motorola Netopia® CD into your CDROM drive.
The Motorola Netopia® Installation Guide Wizard automates
several tasks to get you up and
running easily. These tasks
include making the cable connections and configuring the
Gateway. Run the Wizard on
every PC that will connect to
your network.
The Installation Guide Wizard
will start automatically and the
Welcome screen will appear to
step through the process. Follow the on-screen instructions
to make all of your connections.
When all of your connections are made, your network may look like this:
DSL Port
Power Switch
Rear View
DC Power
4. Enable Wireless Protected Setup (WPS) on your Wi-Fi devices.
Adding wireless clients to your network is easier using Wireless Protected Setup (WPS).
Older, non-WPS clients can still be added to the network by configuring them the standard way with WPA-PSK.
Make sure your wireless clients are running. Press the WPS push-button to begin the
exchange, which may last up to two minutes.
Do not power off your Gateway during the exchange.
The Gateway will display a success message when the exchange has completed.
Note: Not all client wireless devices support WPS. Refer to their documentation.
When all of your connections are made, the status LEDs on the front of your Motorola IAD
Gateway will light, according to the following diagram:
Front View
Ethernet 1, 2, 3, 4
Green when power is on. Red if device malfunctions; flashes red when updating embedded software.

Solid green when connected. Flash green when there is activity on the LAN.
Flashes green when there is activity on the wireless LAN.
Solid green when WPS is successful.
Not currently used.
Flashes green when training. Solid green when trained.
Green when device is connected. Flashes green for activity on WAN port.
Off = The device is not powered or the broadband connection is not present;
Flashing green = Inbound Internet activity seen from the broadband connection

Q: Why is my DSL light flashing green?
A: A flashing green light indicates that no cable is attached to the DSL port or that the
Motorola Netopia® Gateway is negotiating a connection. A solid green DSL light indicates
that an internet connection is established.
If your DSL light does not become solid green, verify that the connection from the Motorola Netopia® Gateway’s DSL port to the telephone/DSL jack is secure. If the connection
is secure, contact your ISP (Internet Service Provider) to verify that your DSL line is functioning properly.
Q: I forgot my password, how can I access my Motorola Netopia® Gateway?
A: If you don't have a password, the only way to access the Motorola Gateway is the following:

Basic Troubleshooting
This section gives some simple suggestions for troubleshooting problems with your Gateway’s
initial configuration.
Before troubleshooting, make sure you have
plugged in all the necessary cables (see “Connections” on page 4); and
set your PC’s TCP/IP controls to obtain an IP address automatically (see “Client Configuration” on page 11).
The first step in troubleshooting is to check the status indicator lights (LEDs) in the order outlined below.

Possible problems
Make sure the power switch is in the ON position.
Make sure the power adapter is plugged into the DSL Gateway properly.
Try a known good wall outlet.
Replace the power supply and/or unit.
Make sure that any telephone has a microfilter installed.

Make sure the DSL cable is plugged into the DSL port on the DSL Gateway.
Make sure the DSL line has been activated at the central office DSLAM.
Make sure the DSL Gateway is not plugged into a micro filter.
Make sure you are using the Ethernet cable, not the DSL cable. The Ethernet cable is thicker than the standard telephone cable.
Make sure the Ethernet cable is securely plugged into the Ethernet jack on
the PC.
Make sure the Ethernet cable is securely plugged into the Ethernet port on
the DSL Gateway.
Try another Ethernet cable if you have one available.
Make sure you have Ethernet drivers installed on the PC.
Make sure the PC’s TCP/IP Properties for the Ethernet Network Control
Panel is set to obtain an IP address via DHCP.
Make sure the PC has obtained an address in the 192.168.1.x range. (You
may have changed the subnet addressing.)
Make sure the PC is configured to access the Internet over a LAN.
Disable any installed network devices (Ethernet, HomePNA, wireless) that
are not being used to connect to the DSL Gateway.
